|Did some rendering in Terragen Classic* today and thought I'd post them here. In fact, I'm thinking of starting this thread for anyone to post their renders in.|
*(yes, I did say in the chatframe yesterday that I downloaded Terragen 2, but I
'm too lazy busy haven't gotten round to fully figuring it out yet)
Oh, and please don't get the impression that I'm a frequent Terragen user... I typically use it just slightly more frequently than posting in the Noctis fanart forum. However I may be experiencing a sudden rekindling of interest towards it.
Anyway, here we go with today's renders...
This gorge here was created when something of massive force slammed and gorged through this planet's surface. In fact it was powerful enough to alter the appearance of the mountain range behind it, and dislodge plenty of material.
The planet depicted here, is a cold one, covered in large areas by mainly frozen liquid, and some rocky, ancient volcanic islands, now very eroded. However, the sun it orbits is beginning to expand into an orange giant, and its seas are ever-so-slowly warming.
Over here on this planet we view the edge of a continental slope. Behind it, on the continental shelf, some large currents of unknown origin are sweeping away silty deposits and piling them up, even forming large islands and ridges above water. These islands rarely keep form, however, as they are slowly swept away by the same currents off the continental slope into the deep.
A pelagic waterworld orbiting a blue giant, temperatures are cool and deep ocean currents are strong. This also depicts the edge of a continental shelf. Slow moving but persistent ocean currents continue their flow beneath the largely still air.

|Nice ones, |
A few years ago there were also some threads like this. They must be around somewhere deep hidden in the ABB catacombs.

I think I understand what you mean. I did as well try to figure it out, but the interface of Terragen2 seemed totally awful at a first glance. Which probably means it's extremely powerful but too complex for random users like me and you... it made me curious, but then I decided I had no time to dedicate to learning it, and that it was making me feel dumb
